After accomplishing the “heavy lifting” of the Kaizen Event planning process-establishing scope, setting objectives, and forming the team-it is time to turn your attention to the logistics component. Where will you hold the Event? When will it start and end? Will you provide food? What supplies will be necessary? How many interim briefings will be held? How will you recognize the team for their efforts? You will also need to consider smaller details, such as whether you will use table tents or some other means to identify team members and whether you will need an icebreaker to help team members get to know one another.
